    OK, cool. Nothing fancy needed. Well, I know what my weekend entails...

    Brakes all the way around...
    Rear diff fluid change out...
    Tranny fluid change with *possible* clutch, pressure plate, throwout bearing, and flywheel replacement and 2nd and 3rd synchro replacement...
    In case you don't know - Make sure that you can remove the fill plug before you drain. It'll help the draining of the fluid but more importantly, you'll know that you can refill. Just wait til you smell the lovely scent of the old diff fluid.

    squeal is gone. It was the back rotors. Those things were shot. Never saw back rotors go before fronts like that. Probably because they aren't vented. I was going to paint the calipers while I had it apart but I don't really have the time right now to do it correctly so I'll get to it over the summer when I can tear it down and do it the right way.

    I don't care for the performance of the ceramic pads.

    Not sure if they make them for the 04's but the Sport line from Baer Brakes work really well without too much dust.
    I hear ya on those ceramic pads. Mine came with ceramics standard in the rear. However when I put a set on the front they destroyed my front rotors. So I replaced all 4 rotors and went to semi metalics in the rear and full metalics in the front. No problems since.
